Kindergarten Art Teacher and Pre/K Assistant
I was born in Nürnberg, Germany, and attended the Gymnasium there and the Höhere Handelsschule. In 1969 I moved to Portland, OR, where I attended college. I have been involved with a Spielgruppe my children attended and later on volunteered in the classrooms of the German Saturday School of Portland and for the past two years I taught the full immersion class for 4-7 year old children. I also volunteer for the Beaverton Art Literacy Program, as well as in my children’s and grandchildren’s classrooms here in Beaverton. My family and I enjoy camping, hiking, gardening and are involved with soccer, golf and other sports.
